For some reason, I am unable to verify the IMDB update receipt: #190525-183754-216000.

It is for "Dancing With the Stars", round 1, which aired on September 22, 2008. I am trying to correct a soundtrack piece from one to another, but for some reason, it's been rejected.

Here's what I got:

Before:
"Gonna Have a Funky Good Time" Written and performed by James Brown Dance: Maurice & Cheryl - Foxtrot
After:
"Doing It To Death" Performed by Fred Wesley and the JB Horns Dance: Maurice & Cheryl - Foxtrot
Reason:
Unable to verify.

I am trying to correct this, but for some reason, they won't accept the change.

Hi, Michael Harrington. You may have to show here a screenshot of the part of the episode in which the song is credited, to get this approved. Otherwise and for future reference, often is best to submit an update whereby one soundtrack item is being deleted (which will require an explanation) and a different one added, in the same submission form, providing a justification (perhaps a URL to evidence of some kind) in the explanation field, including a mention of the item to be added.

Hi Michael -

As Jeorj suggested above, please post a screen grab here of the end credits featuring the song details and our staff can take another look.

Hi Michael,

Was this credited on screen? If so please can you confirm what the song was credited as in the end credits?

They don't credit songs at the end. I'm not even sure if they have any end credits at all. It was taken from Season 7, week 1, night 1, on September 22, 2008.

So this is interesting, if you youtube both song titles they sound like the same song. I am no James Brown expert here though! Do you know which one was released first or the differences between the two that can help us identify that this song title is the correct one?

I'm looking around, but I don't think James Brown's song was ever used on the show. If it was, it's probably on a later episode. But the song is "Doing It To Death" by Fred Wesley and the JB Horns, not "Gonna Have a Funky Time" by James Brown.

The fact is, I had made a mistake and I want to correct it.

Hi Michael -

Thanks for all the additional details, I have now removed the James Brown soundtrack item, and noted that we now have the correct listing for "Doing It To Death" by Fred Wesley and the JB Horns: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1263160/soundtrack?ref_=tt_ql_trv_7

Cheers!
